First or all, telneting to port 993 won't get you any visible data, 
since SSL/TLS is negotiated before any IMAP protocol data is exchanged. 
  If you really want to test imaps, then you should use imtest (included 
with Cyrus) or OpenSSL's s_client.

The error you are seeing most likely means that you haven't configured 
Cyrus for SSL/TLS (tls_* options in imapd.conf).
